Can you believe the regular season starts this weekend folks?

If you missed this over the weekend, we took a look back to last Thursday’s game to see a few key items that we picked up from the win.
The team is pretty darn good at least based on the opener. I think it is important to note how good the 4-4-2 looked and how the wing play was on Thursday.
If you don’t realize how good of a guy Atiba Harris is off the field, maybe this story will sway your opinion.
Year of Kellyn. Say it with me folks. Year of Kellyn.

We all may have to wait until 2018 for this to really happen but the ball is starting to roll in this move. Just too bad he won’t end up here in Dallas.
A lot of good stuff in this one from our beloved roster builder Fernando Clavijo. He’s told me a couple times similar things about how important it is to get quality young talent in this league.
Yes, you read that correctly. Our old pal Brek Shea will now be back in the Western Conference as Orlando sent him to Vancouver for Giles Barnes over the weekend.
You won’t find Oscar Pareja on any list like this but looking at those that are, I have no argument against any of them being there.
It may not seem like a big deal but it is a pretty damn big one. When the money people get on board with the game and the infrastructure of the game too, good things happen.
Speaking of stadium, shovels will FINALLY be in the ground on the DCU stadium. I feel like I have been waiting years to write that line.
We all know it was a disappointing 2016 for the Portland Timbers but now they have a pretty retooled roster that should compete again in the crowded West.
